Did you know that 25% of Filipinos are overweight and about 6% are obese? This is according to the survey done by Food and Nutrition research Institute (FNRI) in 2011 and is expected to increase by 2015.
This is why Roche and Xenical have partnered with the Philippine Association for the Study of Overweight and Obesity (PASOO) to launch a campaign to help you rock your body to a better you. The campaign, dubbed “Rock The Fat Away”, addresses the serious problems of overweight and obesity, including safe and unsafe methods of weight loss. This edgy campaign reminds us that the key to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight isn’t about short-term dietary changes. It’s about a lifestyle that includes a healthy diet, regular physical activity, and taking care of all aspects of our well-being.
At the Glorietta Activity Center last April 6, 2013, Club New You jump-started the journey of many Filipinos to weight loss and a healthy lifestyle. Rock the Fat Away participants were given passport kits upon registration at the event.
One must visit and get a stamp from each of the pit stops to earn special giveaways. Pit stops include: Your Body, which calculates your BMI; Your Diet; Your Workout; Beauty and Wellness; and Club New You registration.
Visiting each pit stops and accomplishing activities and missions along the way is a fun and enlightening way to know more about your body and what you can do towards a healthy lifestyle such as diet and exercise.
A rockin’ workout was also held by Coach Joseph Pagulayan, participants joined the free workout sessions that afternoon.
After finishing all the activities at the pit stop, participants were all encouraged to register at the Club New You’s website for more helpful tips on their weight loss journey. A shirt and samples of Xenical were also given away.
Xenical is recognized as The World’s No. 1 Weight-loss Pill that fights the 3 Ugly Signs of Fat which are fat deposits, weight gain, and cholesterol. It takes the fat from the food you eat and prevents the fat from being digested and absorbed by your body. Then, the body eliminates the undigested fat as oil during bowel movements and uses remaining stored fat for energy.
